What tiaras the York Princesses may wear on their wedding days will be interesting .

Right, it seems I suffer from confusion! Sorry .

I fear that you are right. The last coronation was more than 60 years ago, and many things have changed since. But part of me still hopes that there will be tiaras and some of the old splendour. (I have not much hope for coronets and peers in robes though.)

Yeah, the next Coronations have to maintain some splendor. I can't imagine a beautiful ceremony being watered down to no regalia.

For the people involved there will be regalia and splendor of the Crown Jewels but I don't really see all the audience in robes and tiaras/coronets.

The York girls would probably wear their mother's wedding tiara for their own weddings. Also, for Charles & William's future Coronations.

Are they going to share it?

Did/does Sarah only have one tiara? I mean, yes she was married to the younger son of the monarch, but it seems to me like in the 10 years she was a royal she may have accumulated more than just the one tiara.

It also seems likely to me that at some point in time Beatrice and Eugenie may each get their own tiaras. Comparing them to Zara and Autumn is a bit difficult; neither Zara nor Autumn are royals themselves, and while Beatrice and Eugenie may never be active parts of the Firm, they're still royal women. It is possible that at some point in the future they may attend a state dinner, or a foreign royal tiara event. We've seen the female Kents and Gloucesters have need for tiaras, so it seems likely that in the future Beatrice and Eugenie will each need their own tiara.

That said, the fact that Zara and Autumn used the same tiara for their weddings makes me wonder what they'll wear for Charles or William's coronations.

Actually Zara and Autumn wore different tiaras. Meander for Zara and Festoon for Autumn. Both from Anne's collection. The Yorks if the need a tiara for some reason, they can borrow one from the royal collection.

I agree. The Yorks won't be given their own tiaras just to wear maybe once or twice in their lives. I'm sure the Queen wants to keep the collection intact.

I don't know...it could be that Beatrice would get her mother's tiara and the Queen or Andrew would buy a tiara for Eugenie so they would have something to pass down to their own children.

I assume that Sophie's wedding tiara will pass down to Louise. That one's not a part of the royal collection, is it?

Tiaras and jewels tend to be sold though. The Kents did it as did Princess Margaret's children.

The York's children will be commoners. Other than a wedding day, not really going to need a tiara.

Sarah's tiara was bought from Garradd's for the wedding. It isn't one of ones that was used before.

Was Sarah's wedding tiara the only one that Sarah owned? Or the only one that Andrew owned?

I agree that it would be silly to give either of the Yorks a tiara from the Royal collection - it would make more sense to loan it to them if and when the need arises, and keep the collection intact. However, I'm having a hard time believing that Sarah only ever had one tiara of her own that either she or her husband owned. Did we really never see her wearing any other tiaras?

Google images didn't really show another tiara other than the one bought for the wedding by the Queen. I don't think her family had a tiara already like the Spencers did.

My guess is, like Sarah's engagement and wedding ring, that it remains as the property of Sarah.

I can't imagine that there would have been or will be any instances that Sarah would choose to give away or sell those. She seems to be a very sentimental type person.

It's actually Princess Birgitta who is the Duchess of Gloucester. Alexandra (not Alexandria) would be Princess Alexandra of Kent. Apologies for the minor nitpick.

I see your nitpick (typo on Princess Alexandra name, there is a comma between her and Duchess of Gloucester so not referring to Alex. as Duchess of Gloucester) and raise you one - it's Princess Husband Name for married non royal born princess of the BRF. :)

Only Anne, Beatrice, Eugenie, Alexandra and in theory but not practice Louise are HRH Princess First Name.

Sarah definitely only ever had one tiara. But that one still belongs to her, she had worn it after her divorce for Elton John's "White Tie & Tiara Balls".

I don't think that we can compare the York princesses with the Kents and the Gloucesters, because they are two generations apart. The current Dukes of Kent and Gloucester are the Queen's first cousins, and they started to attend State Banquets in an era when Royal Splendour was still spelled in capital letters, when even regimental dinners or movie premiers would call for tiaras. Those days seem to be gone forever. There are hardly any tiara events left and also there are efforts to down size the Royal Family.

As was already pointed out by Skippyboo, Zara and Autumn wore different tiaras for their weddings. Zara wore the greek key tiara while Autumn wore Princess Anne's festoon tiara. The Princess Royal also has (at least) the aquamarine pine cone tiara. So there will be enough tiara for that branch of the family if the next coronation will call for tiaras.

I think the next coronation will be a tiara event. I don't think Charles wants to make his coronation a jeans and t-shirt affair...that'll be William's coronation.

As far as B & E and tiaras, there will be plenty for them to choose from if they ever need one. I'm sure there are pieces that haven't seen the light of day for 100 years. Both ladies would look good in a tiara, don't you think?

Would it be possible to have a copy of the Rundell Tiara made for either Princess Beatrice or Princess Eugenie?
